Wrestling & Martial Arts Mats Buyer's Guide
Rubber gym floor tiles


Wrestling and martial arts are no joke, and they definitely require the proper protection - not just from your gear, but your floor/mat as well.

Okay, listen, we’re talking legit wrestling today. Not that WWE soap opera they play on cable tv. Real, legit, sporty wrestling that needs a real, legit, sporty mat. But if you watch the fake stuff, we promise not to judge you.

Lies. I totally had my fingers crossed.

In all seriousness, let’s take a look at how to choose the best wrestling mat or martial arts mat for your needs.



Safety is #1. Always.

Think about it - wrestling and martial arts are high-impact sports, and the scare of getting injured is real. You need a mat that is shock absorbent, firm and supportive.

Be sure to check out the recommended uses for your mat, too. If you’re just going to be practicing your sport at home, you don’t need to spend the extra cash on a mat that is designed for commercial use.

Alternatively, if you are running a wrestling gym or martial arts studio, it’s important to make sure you choose a mat that’s designed for that much activity. Because you know what’s more expensive than the heavier duty mat? A lawsuit after someone gets injured on the knock off mat you bought for $11.

Easy Maintenance / Installation

Wrestling mat maintenance is a real concern. You’ve got a bunch of dirty humans wrestling with their bodies all over the floor and, 1, that can be kinda gross, but (more importantly) 2, it can be a breeding ground for germs and diseases.

Don’t run away yet! We have solutions. In fact, our wrestling mats have been specifically constructed out of nonporous materials that will keep dirt, sweat and bacteria on the outside rather than trapped inside the mat itself.

To ensure the safety and cleanliness of your mat, it’s important to sanitize with any cleaning sanitizer after every use. The mats aren’t that big, so this process will be quick and painless, saving you lots of time and sickness in the long run.

So unless you are creating a huge studio or university program, chances are you don’t have a huge space to dedicate to your sport, and you probably don’t have a bunch of extra money lying around to pay someone to install your new floor.

None of our wrestling or martial arts mats require any installation. Simply lay them on the floor and get to work. It really is that easy.

Each of these mats is specifically designed for easy transportation, either in a super easy roll up mat (like a yoga mat) or as a lightweight mat with handles to make moving it around a breeze.


As I mentioned earlier, you want to pick a mat that is appropriate for your needs. Luckily, we have a mat for just about every level of wrestling and martial arts!

This is your beginners level mat. Think: just joined the junior high wrestling team with dreams of making varsity one day.

This is your mat to practice on at home so you can kill it at practice and show your coach how much you’ve improved. But it can also do so much more!

Our Home Wrestling Mats are super versatile - you can practice MMA, do basic floor exercises, abs, stretching and more. They’re perfect for use for the whole family because everyone can get something different out of them and they’re super affordable.

These are a perfect temporary option for home practice. Ready to move onto something new? Simply roll it up and put it away. They’re super portable, convenient and easy to move.

If you’re looking for a versatile, beginner’s mat for wrestling, MMA and more at home, look no further than these babies.

This mat has just about everything you need in a wrestling mat in a compact, practice-sized version.Obviously, most homes, schools, etc. don’t have the space to keep a huge competition mat out at all times. These guys are you you use the rest of the time.

These mats are for the junior varsity and varsity level athletes who need a space to get extra practice at home or coaches that need a practice space for the team.

Alternatively, they are also shock absorbent enough to be used for home practice for cheerleading, gymnastics, MMA and more. We like to think of them as a multi-use mat.

Where do you put these guys? That’s easy - anywhere! Basement, living room, garage, school gym, even outdoors, these mats are designed to work in any space, and they’re super lightweight and easy to roll up and put away when you’re ready to use your space for something else, like laying on the ground being totally unproductive. Although, you can absolutely do that on the mat, too.

If you’re an intermediate/advanced athlete or coach looking for an easy, portable option for practice, you will love these Deluxe Home Wrestling Mats.

The creme de la creme martial arts mats: our Landing Mats! These hardcore mats are tough enough to protect athletes at the top competitive level.

In fact, these mats are so shock absorbent, they are also referred to as “crash mats” and they are tough enough to withstand falls from the kind of battles you usually only see in the movies. You know, the falling from the rooftop kinda thing.

This is the top level mat, and certainly, not everyone needs a top level mat. Our Landing Mats are commercially rated and designed to provide the maximum shock absorbency for the highest impact, while still maintaining a solid foundation.

If you travel for competitions, don’t worry - we’ve got you covered. These mats come with handles that make them super easy to move around.

Have you ever tried to move a mattress with no handles on the sides? It is the absolute worst. We won’t do that to you. You’re welcome.

These bad boys are so tough, we even back them up with an impressive 3 year warranty. Mostly because we’re sure we’ll never have to use it. But for real, they’ll last you for 3 years, and if something happens, we’ve got you covered.

If you’re opening a new martial arts studio or training professional wrestlers, gymnasts or cheerleaders for competition, the Landing Mats are going to be your jam.
